Hey Summers,

Nice video.
I like the idea of doing the config validation at build time.
I think its important that an App can launch to some usable state, even if
offline (for the first or subsequent launches).

I'd like to know your thoughts on if there's value in having the config
endpoint in the mcp server?
Why even bother with calling the endpoint if you could just take the config
from that response and use that in your App?
(e.g. show the full config for all services in the MCP UI)
